Nutriquo Protein Pan’lette Mix Classic is made form a mixture of various flours, and is marketed as an alternative to chillas, dosas, omelettes, and pancakes.
The product contains a little more than 9 grams of protein per 40 gram serving, which is reasonably high.
foodnetindia Safety Rating: 7 (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
The product is a mix of lentil and cereal flours, with no added sugar.
However, we are forced to lower the rating as it does not specify the name of the ‘Natural Identical Flavour’ used.
foodnetindia Wholesomeness Rating: 7 (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The product has a reasonably high protein content and is not, unlike a dosa, mostly empty carbs. However we, like the brand, do recommend that it be consumed with a serving of vegetables.
Ingredients of Concern in Nutriquo Protein Pan’lette Mix Classic
Natural Identical Flavour:
This product does not specify the chemical name of the flavour, used and does not mention the quantity used either. While we understand that the legal labelling requirements allow this practice, we believe that responsible brands should self-disclose.
Some people are allergic to some of these chemicals and others may want to avoid them. Consumers have a right to know and decide.

Response from NutriQuo:
Thanks to FoodNetIndia for its efforts to enable safe healthy food for consumers.
